Gas heater return?

I live in a ranch house and the return duct running down into my gas furnace has about a two inch gap between it and the garage ceiling. The exhaust duct also has a large gap between it and the ceiling. Is it safe to fill the gap (I want to use the heat radiating from the docts to keep the garage warm, as opposed to letting it rise into the attic and be lost), and if so, what's the best material to use? Thanks!

You could use 3"x3"x whatever length pieces you need to fill in the gaps. Use 26-30 gauge sheet metal or aluminum. Butt each piece against the ceiling and pop rivet (or screw) to the ductwork. Or you could fasten it with metallic tape (before you apply the tape to the metal, clean it first as there may be a film of oil or dirt that will prevent the tape from sticking well)

Actually, doing what you propose, you won't gain enough heat in your garage to make a significant difference. But closing the gaps will help if you are using another heat source, such as a space heater, to help heat the garage. Good luck.
